    Happy 4th to you and your family also Marie. Finally here in Chicago we are experiencing “summer” weather.
    All your dishes look amazing and every recipe I’ve tried of yours always comes out just the way you say it will.
    All the best and keep those recipes coming.
    I’ll continue checking my mail box everyday for a invite! Warmly, Carol

  2. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Independence Day — at least we had one decent sunshiney day amongst rain and more rain. Now I’m sorry to be so bold but — are those all the dishes you had yesterday and if so. Do you have any, ummm, leftovers?? They all look so scrumptious. I don’t know how far away you live from Indiana but I could be there in no time 🙂 Have a safe weekend and looking forward to your next recipe and story.

  3. Hello – I tried to ‘click’ on some of the photo’s above, hoping the photo’s would link to your corresponding recipes, but I got taken to just a big ‘collage’ photo. Will you have links to these recipes? There are several I would like to try, but I don’t know the recipe names, so that I could even search for them on your site. Thank you! They all look amazing!!!

    • Traci, You can email me and I’d be happy to provide you with the links, I didn’t know how to do that in the collage, but they are definitely posted within my blog.

    Hi! I think I just gained 5 lbs just looking at the photos!
    YUM! I am wondering what the dish is in the top photo collage- the very last photo at the bottom.
    Thank you so much!!!

    • Chris is plank grilling with cheese, that’s the actual title of the blog post, you can find it in my recipe index under appetizers.

  6. Trust you had a wonderful holiday, Marie! Here it was raining cats and dogs, so no cookout… 🙁 But we put the “bistecchiera” to some good use!
